More than 10.000 documents for Administrative transparency
  • The normative concept of transparency, along with the open government laws that purport to create a transparent public system of governance, promises the moon-a democratic and accountable state above all, and a peaceful, prosperous, and efficient one as well. But transparency, in its role as the theoretical justification for a set of legal commands, frustrates all parties affected by its ambiguities and abstractions. The public's engagement with transparency in practice yields denials of reasonable requests for essential government information, as well as government meetings that occur behind closed doors. Meanwhile, state officials bemoan the significantly impaired decision-making processes that result from complying with transparency's sweeping and powerful legal mandates and complain...

    ...20 Moreover, the financial and administrative costs of complying with these laws are ...

  • Constitutional, criminal, and administrative laws regulating government transparency, and the theories that support them, rest on the assumption that the disclosure of information has transformative effects: disclosure can inform, enlighten, and energize the public, or it can create great harm and stymie government operations. To resolve disputes over difficult cases, transparency laws and theories typically balance disclosure’s beneficial effects against its harmful ones-what I have described as transparency’s balance. WikiLeaks and its vigilante approach to massive document leaks challenge the underlying assumption about disclosure’s effects in two ways. First, WikiLeaks’ ability to receive and distribute leaked information cheaply, quickly, and seemingly unstoppably enables it to byp...

  • The Administrative Conference of the United States adopted four recommendations at its Fifty-eighth Plenary Session. The appended recommendations address ways to improve the adjudication of Social Security disability benefits, best practices for use of benefit-cost analysis in rulemaking by independent regulatory agencies, transparency in agencies' scientific decisionmaking, and best practices for agencies with respect to the administrative record in informal rulemaking.

  • When courts review agencies' scientific and technical determinations, they often emphasize that the specialized subject matter requires them to be at their most deferential. This "super-deference" principle seems appealing because it is supported by basic notions of institutional competence and accommodates a natural judicial tendency to avoid deep encounters with science. But it stands in stark tension with the expectation that courts must reinforce administrative-law values like participation, transparency, and deliberation. And it fails to further the legitimizing function of incorporating the best possible science into institutional decision making. Surprisingly, there is no scholarship comprehensively assessing super deference. This Article begins to fill that gap by evaluating sup...

  • This article, based on research conducted in Jordan, discusses how favoritism affects the business climate. Jordan's business climate is mediocre in international and regional comparison, making it insufficient in light of the country's small domestic market. Businesspeople consider the complexity of administrative procedures to be a main problem for investors, along with a lack of fairness and predictability in administrative decisions. Favoritism, which is referred to as "using wasta," (connections) contributes substantially to both problems. Investors with good wasta can speed up procedures and get exclusive access to services and information. They can even influence legislation to their advantage. Perhaps even more problematic, entrepreneurs tend to invest their time and money in so...

    ...The central problem is the lack of transparency and accountability in Jordan's political system, ...

  • WHILE THE drama and pathos of President Ronald Reagan's military theaters of the 1980s may pale in comparison with current military theater in the Middle East, no doubt the human yearnings and tragedies in the 20th and 21st century arenas share significant parallels. Sitting In Limbo, a modest play based loosely on the events following the imploded/exploded revolution that shook Grenada in the 1980s, has returned to New York for six performances this week at Manhattan's Producers Club. The promise of change was buoyed up by the people via work cooperatives that built roads, canneries and fisheries, infrastructure aimed at maximizing agrarian production and ensuring food security. The architects of the change were the members of the revolutionary cohort led by [Maurice Bishop] who had cu...
